Austin
Austin is a cool place to spend your Fourth — not only does the Austin Symphony play patriotic tunes during the fireworks show, but the Rattle Independence Day Celebration offers rooftop views, Jello shots, and bomb pops for those who want to party hard. There's something for everyone.

For those who want to play tourist during the weekend, follow Travel + Leisure's guide. You can visit Waterloo Records (one of the best record shops in the world,) Cathedral of Junk (a backyard turned junk-art palace,) and cool down at their fun swimming holes.
